President Donald Trump United Nations Foreign Policy

Trump's latest steps to punish foreign companies that deal with the North was the latest salvo in a US -led campaign to isolate and impoverish the government of Kim Jong Un until it halts the missile and nuclear tests.

President Donald Trump has announced a new order to help the USA target people, companies and banks financing and facilitating trade with North Korea.

In his maiden address to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump called Kim "Rocket Man" and said that his administration was prepared to defend the country and its allies if Kim continued to threaten the United States and to destabilize East Asia.

"Tolerance for this disgraceful practice must end now", he said of providing resources to North Korea.

"This slander against the supreme leader in front of an worldwide audience that is going to cause the Foreign Ministry to have to leap to the defense of Kim, whether or not Kim orders it", said Robert Carlin, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst on North Korea who remains a close reader of its statements. Trump's darkest instincts combined with his puerility as he once again mocked Kim Jong-un as "Rocket Man".

Kim, in his statement, said Trump is "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country". "I'd like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world", Kim said.

More than 80 percent of North Korea's foreign trade is with China, while both Beijing and Moscow have been blamed for helping North Korea develop its missile program. "What is strategically important is that the United States faces more painful responses in the actions, behavior and decisions that Iran takes in the coming months", Jafari said in a statement, as cited by Sepah News, the media outlet of the Revolutionary Guards. He said the order would also allow the United States to identify new industries - including textiles, fishing and manufacturing - as potential targets for future actions.

US President Donald Trump's dystopian vision was on full display at his first appearance before the UN General Assembly.

The executive order Trump inked just ahead of the lunch enhances Treasury Department authorities to target individuals who provide goods, services or technology to North Korea, Trump said.

North Korea condemned the fresh sanctions, vowing to strengthen its nuclear program at a faster pace.

"We call on all countries around the world to join us by cutting off all trade and financial transactions with North Korea".

"President Trump has handed the North Koreans the soundbite of the century", said Marcus Noland of the Peterson Institute for International Economics and one of the authors of its "North Korea: Witness to Transformation" blog. China is North Korea's main trading partner and conduit for global transactions.

Shaping the general idea of what he would say, I expected he would make stereo-typed, prepared remarks a little different from what he used to utter in his office on the spur of the moment as he had to speak on the world's biggest official diplomatic stage. Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Thursday that negotiations are the "only way out" of the nuclear standoff. Trump spoke by phone with Xi on Monday and praised the leader during multiple sets of remarks here on Thursday for the banking moves, which were reported by Reuters.

"If the North carries out such a test, the U.S.is expected to use military force and the worldwide community will likely strongly respond to it due to risk of radioactive leaks", said Lee Choon-geun, a senior research fellow at the Science and Technology Policy Institute. China's embassy in Washington declined to comment Thursday.
